*or, How to Get Your Meat-Loving Guy to Love a Vegan Meal

How often does this happen to you? (I promise, this is not an infomercial): You come across a new recipe that sounds wonderful, and, fired up with anticipation, you can’t wait to try it. You rush home, prepare the […]

My Favorite Mistake: Savory Filled Breakfast Crepes

I really hate making mistakes. Not only because they sometimes wreak havoc (“What? The model of Stonehenge on stage was supposed to be 18 FEET high, not 18 inches???” or, “What? But I thought the BLUE was the ‘panic button,’ Mr. President!!!”), but also because they make me feel really knuckle-brained sometimes (“Um, […]

Dog Day: Fame Has Gone to Their Heads

It’s so great to hear from people who enjoy seeing (and hearing!) The Girls in the blog. But I have to tell you, folks, what with all this attention, and then with the Oscar buzz happening yesterday (yay Daniel Day-Lewis!), they suddenly think they’re celebrities or something. They’ve even begun to re-enact famous movies.

Dreams of Chocolate

Nope, not one. Not a single one. Not even the tiniest smidgen of one.

Roasted Potatoes with Sweet and Sour Cipollini Onions

There are times when I glance around my chaotic home office, and I despair a little. Then my eyes glaze over and I fall into a reverie about the good ol’ days, when I used to be organized: desktop in order, with clearly demarcated “to do” and “done” piles. Mail returned […]

Pudding is a Virtue

Both our dogs contain a generous sprinkling of Border Collie, a breed known for its patience. As a working breed, BCs were meant to guard sheep all day; and since sheep are not exactly what you’d call wild and crazy guys, the BCs must be willing to sit still for a very […]

Meme-ories

In the past week I’ve been tagged for a meme by a few people and thought I’d be eco-minded and just combine all the answers here.

The 123 Book Meme from Annie at Health Treks is actually the easiest–just open a book to page 123 and copy what it says. The other meme, from […]

Soba Noodles with Ginger, Chard and Walnuts

While taking some leisure time to browse through a few food blogs recently (read: two hours at my desk when I should have been working), I happened upon the blog event They Go Really Well Together, hosted by blog.khymos.org (“dedicated to molecular gastronomy”). The gist of the event is that two or more seemingly mis-matched […]

Juicy Cuisine and Crunchy Granola

Part I: THE JUICE SEGMENT (feel free to skip to Part II)

We’re having some down time today at the DDD household, as today is the first-ever Family Day holiday in Ontario (I’ve always thought it only civilized to have a day off in February–the gap between New Year’s and Easter/Passover is just too long). […]

Could This Be Love? Post V-Day Dinner

Even though this morning was the first day of my chocolate detox, that didn’t stop me from having a whale of a time at our (slightly postponed) Valentine’s Day Dinner last evening. With the weather being as inclement as ever, the HH and I began prepping our meal around 3:30 PM, and just kept at […]
